NO OF PAGES: 96 SUB CAT I: Feasts/Festivals SUB CAT II: SUB CAT III: DESCRIPTION: Every winter, Jewish families come together to celebrate Hanukkah, the eight-day Festival of Lights. As in many other traditions, Hanukkah celebrates the optimistic hope for the return of light in the darkest part of winter. The centerpiece and most important symbol of this holiday is the Hanukkah menorah, or Hanukkiah. This eight-branched lamp is a beloved object, somewhere between sacred and secular, in the Jewish home and synagogue.
Over the centuries, the Hanukkah menorah has been created with artistry, passion, hope, and humor. The Lights of Hanukkah's 62 color photographs and accompanying text explore the Hanukkiah's art and craft from every corner of the world, as well as the history and culture of Hanukkah through prayers, songs, and readings.NOTES: Purchased from Half Price Books.
